IVFD equips homes with batteries PDF Print E-mail

Homes in Imperial were visited by the Imperial Volunteer Fire Department (IVFD) and some youthful volunteers Sunday and Monday to distribute free batteries and take orders for smoke detectors. Greg Dannatt, IVFD president, said 300 nine-volt batteries were given away to homeowners to refresh their smoke detector units. They also visited with homeowners about the number of smoke detectors in their homes. From those interviews, the IVFD will order 50 detectors, the majority of which will go to homes that had just one. Some homes had no detectors at all, Dannatt said. The IVFD recommends a minimum of one smoke detector on each floor of the home and one in or outside of every bedroom. Homeowners should also replace smoke detector batteries twice a year when they change their clocks.
